Found this place whilst wandering the old market and very glad we did. I ordered the chicken risotto and My fiancé chose the Greek salad. Both were superb and filling. And to top it off a complementary plate of very fresh, very tasty cherries. Our waiter was excellent offering both advise and good service. Well recommended!

Set in the winding maze of cobbled laneways surrounding the Venetian castle in Naxos town - what more could you ask for? The food was authentic Greek and delicious, good sized portions and well priced. Good service and overall a great islands experience.

Yet another atmospheric authentic taverna situated in the labyrinthe narrow streets of old Naxos town. In my opinion the food here is the best! I had pork with mashed potatoes covered in a red wine and mastike sauce which made the meal. Two carafes of wine were ridiculously chaeap. The service here was again fast and efficient together with complimentary... More

Great beef with tomato sauce, well cooked, as well moussaka and zucchini balls. You eat here and you can only love greek food. You can decide to sit inside or outside on a very characteristic alley. Good service. We had our dinners here during our previous two holidays in Naxos and quality didn't change.

Lucullus advertises itself as the oldest Taverna in Naxos. It's impossible to comment on the truth of this but this atmospheric old building in the streets below the old Fortress that dominates the harbour in Naxos town certainly feels as though it has been there since classical times (though they only claim 1908). You can dine inside but we settled... More

We arrived here following a good meal the night before at Metaxu Mas and had spotted this restaurant on trip advisor as a slight improvement. It wasn't, the food was okay but lacked some of the freshness you would associate with restaurants of this price. We had a lovely raki and yoghurt at the end of the meal so all... More

The grilled peppers with grilled halloumi cheese was just a terrific lunch. Unfortunately we discovered this establishment, the oldest taverna on Naxos, our last day there. We went back for dinner and it was also wonderful.

When we happened upon this enchanting little restaurant in the Old Market Street we weren't even looking for a place to eat (between our regular mealtimes). Seeing the place made us immediately hungry so we decided we hadn't had enough for our lunch - and when we were served the meals we were delighted. The family that seemed to run... More

Decided to hit this place up for our last dinner in Naxos and are certainly glad we did. We were warmly greeted when walked in the door. We loved the atmosphere, very down to earth, comfortable and friendly. For appetizer ordered the zucchini balls which were so delicious! For entrees ordered the rabbit stifado and the catch of the day,... More

We sought out this taverna in the old town, tucked away in one of the many tiny narrow laneways which are so picturesque. It has been here since 1908 and has many interesting pictures and artefacts around its walls. We stayed out of town so chose to eat lunch here whereas many tavernas and restaurants are only open in the... More
